    Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    I'm on a Verizon iPhone 5, 7.0.4 jailbreak.

    It happens roughly 5 to 10 times daily, browsing Facebook, on Flipboard, on Safari, springboard crashes. The odd thing is that I'm not in Safe Mode. I see the Apple logo, and in less than 15 seconds, I'm back to my unlock screen. It's more annoying than anything as a result.

    Recently however, the screen dims, colors become distorted, and the phone crashes. The screen will sometimes turn a bright greenish color and crash. This happened today almost right after Cydia Substrate was updated, and the crashes are starting to get more frequent.

    I don't have any cracked apps. Any idea what may be causing the issue? Here's what I have installed:

    Lock Screen Tool
    Messages Customiser
    Share Widget

    I'm essentially at a point where I'm thinking of Restoring to avoid any further issues, setting up as a new phone, jailbreaking, and then adding all my data in. It seems to be the best route.

    Any other suggestions?

    Just came back from the Apple store.

    Apparently a corner of the screen was "lifted" from an apparent drop. That was causing the screen issues, and not something from the jailbreak, which I was suspecting.

    Unfortunately I'm not under warranty, so I'll have to dish out $268 from a brand new unit.

    I don't recall dropping the phone when the problems started, but I guess it was something that had been building up for a while.
